Plan your Beijing tour? You are highly recommended to have a bite of Da Dong Roast Duck. Dadong Roast Duck refers to the famous brand roast duck made by the upscale Dadong Roast Duck Restaurant which has two branches – Dadong Roast Duck Nanxincang (南新仓）and Dadong Roast Duck Tuanjiehu （团结湖).
Da Dong Roast Duck Nanxincang is located in the Nan Xin Cang Cultural and Pedestrian Street ( add: No.22A Dongsi Shitiao, Dongcheng District, Beijing). Nanxincang Street is one of the Beijing characteristic commercial streets. Nan Xin Cang was once one of the royal granaries for grains and rice storage in Beijing during the Ming and Qing dynasties.
It was originally built in 1409 with a history of over 600 years, almost the same age as Beijing’s Forbidden City. It has been developed into a leisure and commercial pedestrian street or complex, which is mainly composed of the ancient grain house, a few replica traditional buildings used for restaurants and a 15-storey commercial building – Nanxincang International Building. Nanxingcang is a innovative blend between commercial groups and multi-cultures of Beijing.
Dadong Roast Duck Nanxincang occupies an area of 3000 square meters taking up the first and second floors of the 15-storey Nanxincang International Building. It has 30 private compartments sized to accommodate 4-5 people, 7-8 people, 10-12 people, 16-18 people, 20 people, 30 people and 50 people as well as the some space set for individual dinners on the first floor. The decor of Dadong Roast Duck Nanxincang is delicately designed with mixed Chinese traditional and contemporary style. The setting is clean, bright, classical and trendy.
Da Dong Roast Duck stands out from numerous roast duck restaurants. Why Da Dong Roast Duck? What differentiates Dadong Roast Duck from both Quanjude Roast Duck and Bianyifang Roas Duck? The Dadong Roast Duck features “crisp in skin and less in fat and oil”, aimed at healthy and scientific eating of roast ducks, meeting the demand of modern dinners.
Dadong, or Da Dong has become a brand in restaurant business in Beijing. Its restaurant is named “Da Dong” and subtitled ” Dadong Roast Duck Restaurant”. Now Da Dong produces not only just roast ducks, but also many creative recipes combining traditional Shandong cuisine and modern recipes. Of course, roast ducks are still Da Dong’s main course.
